Meltdown on WRIF

Weekdays 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

If you’re any sort of 80s rock fan, you need some Loudness in your life. The band was formed in 1981, and became the first Japanese metal band to sign a deal with a U.S. major label. This album, their 5th, dropped on January 21, 1985.

This record is so good. A friend once commented on its great tone, and he’s right. The guitars are pitch perfect.

Check this one out if you get a chance. I have a few more albums from these guys, but this one is the best.
